  • In an episode of the Where's Waldo? animated series, Waldo found himself in the path of a charging rhino. After the commercial break, Waldo was safe and the Narrator asked Waldo how he got the rhino to stop charging. Waldo explained that he took away its credit cards.
  • On Kick Buttowski, a story told by Kick ends with him getting eaten by a giant sewer rat. At the end of the episode, Gunther asks Kick how he got out of the rat. Kick explains that he simply spinned around in circles until he was all pooped out.
